Tribe claws closer to the top with win over Chisox

Posted:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -

Justin Masterson pitched six effective innings, Kosuke Fukudome had a tie breaking RBI triple and the Cleveland Indians inched closer to the top of the AL Central with a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

Matt LaPorta hit a two-run homer for Cleveland, which pulled within 1 1/2 games of idle Detroit for the division lead. The Tribe opens a three-game series at Detroit on Friday.

Paul Konerko homered for the White Sox, which lost starter Phil Humber on a scary play in the second inning. Konerko, Adam Dunn and Omar Vizquel each had two hits, and Tyler Flowers singled in a run.

Masterson (10-7) allowed two runs and seven hits. Chris Perez got the last three outs for his 27th save in 30 chances
